  1. Just a head’s up so that nobody brings their pitchforks my way... I’ve been out of PB for about a year (take a look at my most recent updates prior to this and you’ll have a rough date) John made The “Official” announcement on Facebook a couple weeks back I havent had contact with him in months so I have no answers for you guys. I am sorry . ~Nathan Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Sorry man, we both have been having health issues and all projects are on hold as we try to take care of ourselves. Thanks for your continued patience. ~Nathan
  3. It's not quite that simple, but yeah it's much easier than it used to be.
  4. That's what we were going for. That's why we chose the name Praetorian ( we chose it before we found out that Snoke's guards are also Praetorian Guards :oops) Maybe ukswrath can snap a few pics. I don't have one built at home.
  5. Sly fox nailed it I hope we made our rubber blaster good enough for him lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. We spoke with slyfox when we were developing our blaster . He was of great assistance . I just couldn't find your thread when I was posting yesterday , that's why I was asking . Also, we've been asked to provide pics of our rubber blaster for the CRL , but haven't been able to because John cracked a couple ribs so we aren't working , Here's the blaster we make ( you can use it until we take better pics ) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. also, the CRL says either M19 or M38 scope. I believe the Rogue one uses the M38 exclusively so, maybe level 1 can be either, but 2 and 3 would be M38? is there a thread on FISD discussing the R1 E-11 and the found parts?
  10. The R1 E-11 was based off of an airsoft version of the Sterling. So I guess technically, yes it's based off of a real Sterling. But... The propmakers actually used an S&T airsoft Sterling as the base. they added all of the parts that make it an E-11 and came up with this: it's discussed somewhat here:
  11. also, I have a problem with the CRL calling out a specific Vendor by name. Can we omit "Hyperfirm" from the CRL? They aren't the only ones making rubber blasters. That'd be like saying "DoopyDoos resin cast"
  12. I have a question about the blaster itself... The CRL above states "Based on a real or replica Sterling sub-machine gun" but, the Rogue One E-11 isn't based off of a Real Sterling. I know it's being nitpicky,but I was curious.
  13. Hey gents It's been a long time coming and I promise the wait is almost over . A few things came up that pushed us back but it's gonna be worth the wait (I hope lol) Here's a few pics of the very first casting from the new mold . It's just the lower, but we have the last part in silicone as we speak . We wanted to improve upon what we had offered years ago and made a few changes : 1. Separate feed tray cover 2. Separate muzzle 3. Charging handle included and will be screwed on 4. Disc molded in 5. Ejection port box is molded in 6. Fins are molded in and have slots for the wire (they will come pre-wired by us) 7. The selector lever is now present Here's a few pics Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Thanks for the compliments Won't be very long now ... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. We are getting very close now guys ,we attached all of the parts we modeled and printed for the lower portion We have a few more parts to add and also the feed tray cover . Stay tuned Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Hey Guys. Just an update. We're nearing completion on this new DLT-19 project. We've done a few things that we think will make you all proud; 1. We've molded the receiver cover separately so you will get some detail and depth where is should be on the receiver. 2. We've separated the barrel tip for venting to get rid of the loss of detail at the butt stock. 3. The charging handle will be removable and will have a threaded steel insert in the blaster body. This will give you a metal anchor for the charging handle that won't strip out. 4. The Bipod comes glued in place and is not functional. 5. The barrel tip detail is molded separately to give a deeper, more realistic business end to the blaster. 6. These will come painted black as a standard. 7. The fins will come wire wrapped as a standard option. 8. We will offer weathering and butt stock woodgrain (although not canon -Just FYI... A bakelite stock that is painted black is canon for the film.)
  18. that is correct. The actual base gun used for the real R1 blasters was the sterling from Evike. They also took DoopyDoo's scope and added it LOl. Everything on it seems to be a found part. we took the Evike (and other found parts) and molded them to replicate the R1 version of the E-11 and cast them in Rubber. Turned out pretty awesome I think LOL
  19. You are right about it being a preference and not a requirement. You are also correct in stating that the "real" blasters didn't have the spring either. You like the Star Warsy laser gun look, and I can appreciate that. But for me personally, I like the spring. I also like to make it look like a real world weapon. That's why we included the spring and even the molt details in our blasters. (if you are wondering why the scope rail and front sights are not hollow, the reason is because it's cast in rubber)
  20. First of all, let me start with a huge Thank You to everyone that has already purchased a Blaster from us. We are so glad to hear that you are pleased with our work. Keep those reviews and pictures of you trooping with our blasters coming! Secondly, let me say that we are still up and running and working hard to bring you guys more options and newer blasters. We have been a bit overworked in our real jobs lately and haven't been able to devote as much time as would like. Hopefully that will let up soon. Thirdly, let me give you an update of where we are: 1.The ANH E-11 (M38 and M19) blasters are still being made and shipped. (albeit at a little slower pace due to work) 2. We released the Rogue One E-11 and it was well received We want you to know that we do listen to you guys. We try our best to give you want you want. Case in point: the R1 E-11 comes with a metal D-ring that actually swivels. It also comes with a hollow scope rail. We are very happy with this one. And Finally , let me offer an update on the DLT-19. It's being prepped for molding still. I know, it's not as fast as we'd like either. But, it'll be worth the wait. We ask for patience and a little faith lol. Thanks again to everyone that has purchased, is purchasing now, or plans to in the future. We couldn't do it without you guys.
  21. Hey guys, The for sale thread is up: http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/42111-fs-praetorian-blasters-rubber-rogue-one-e-11/
  22. Just a teaser... The first one is out of the mold: Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. That's great news. It would have been better if we hadn't already printed ours LOL. But is still great that everything has been identified Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I don't think he has a problem with us posting about the DLT-19. I think he's just wondering why I'm talking about an E-11 in my DLT19 thread . Either way, the R1 E-11 is well on its way and we will be shifting our focus back to the DLT19 in the next several days Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
